Did Your Doctor Misdiagnose Your Cancer?

Cancer is not the same disease it was 20 years ago. People are living longer with a cancer diagnosis and have more options regarding treatments. More options, that is, if it is diagnosed early enough.

A delayed cancer diagnosis can mean the difference between a minor surgery to remove a malignant growth and major surgery to remove significantly more tissue, or being forced to undergo chemotherapy or radiation that may not have otherwise been needed. While we all can appreciate the need for physicians to order fewer unnecessary tests, there is no excuse for a physician ignoring symptoms or failing to administer inexpensive, routine tests to detect common cancers.

Common types of cancer include:

Improper Treatment Of Cancer

Improper treatment can also affect your prognosis for recovering from cancer. Physicians may treat things merely to spare their clinics the cost of referrals or simply to retain medical fees for themselves. Perhaps the treatment your physician prescribed was more aggressive than was needed and caused a weakened immune system that left you open to serious infection. Perhaps the degree of surgical eradication of a tumor left you with serious scarring or disfigurement that cannot be repaired by reconstructive surgery.
